China Limits Online Video Games To Three Hours A Week For Minors by uk   2021-08-31 20:13:42 (said):
China has announced a new restriction on when and how long citizens under 18 years old can play video games.

Beginning Sept. 1, Chinese minors will only be able to play one hour of video games from 8 p.m. until 9 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and legal holidays, according to a Monday statement from the National Press and Publication Administration . This decision was made in order to prevent minors from developing video game addictions and to protect the physical and mental health of the country's youth, it added.

The NPPA will verify the amount of time that minors spend playing online by requiring games to connect to an online anti-addiction verification system. This will force users to provide their real identity to register for game accounts and log into online games.

In mandating these limits, the NPPA said they are intended to help families and schools create a healthy environment for the youth of China. And for children, the limits are intended to help develop healthy online usage and avoid overindulgence in online games.

Honor of Kings is the most popular online mobile game in China , according to New Zoo . Earlier this month, the game was forced to limit the playtime of its Chinese minors to only one hour on weekdays and two hours on weekends, Engadget reported.
